For the second straight weekend Penn State played host to prospects for the Class of 2010. See who was on campus and get an exclusive update from FOS recruiting analyst Cory James.

This past weekend Penn State took the opportunity to show a few recruiting prospects what the Nittany Lions have to offer student-athletes. The weekend list included three current verbals for the Class of 2010, all of whom were on official visits:

Dominique Easley, DE
Kevin Haplea, TE
Kyle Baublitz, DE

This weekend's visit list was significantly shorter from the previous weekend's, which featured upwards of several recruits, including Paul Jones (QB), Khairi Fortt (LB), Mike Hull (LB), DaQuan Jones (DL), Alex Kenney (WR), Levi Norwood (WR), C.J. Olaniyan (DL) and Silas Redd (RB), among others.

The prospect of most interest was Easley, who recently made a visit to Oregon to check out the Ducks. Easley was hosted by Ollie Ogbu and had the opportunity to meet several players, take in some bowl preparations and talk with defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

Easley and Ogbu.

One observer explained to us, "He seemed to enjoy it and he spent a good amount of time with [Coach Johnson], but seemed to play things pretty close to the vest."

Over the weekend Easley indicated that his visit was going "good," but he is "still thinking" about his commitment.

Another prospect who took in an unofficial visit is Scout 4-star, Jersey City, N.J., Class of 2011 running back Savon Huggins. Huggins already has offers from programs like Boston College, Cal, Tennessee, Miami, West Virginia and Rutgers. He is said to have a strong interest in PSU, as indicated by his early visit.

As Cory James explained, "He is a big time RB for next year, and a good sign to get him on campus so early."

Since Hugging is only a junior, his visit was an unofficial, and he left campus for the PSU-Virginia Tech basketball game Saturday night. The other three prospects all attended.

Haplea's host was receiver Brett Brackett, another New Jersey native. Baublitz's host was defensive end Pete Massaro.
